I've been buying the 2006 & 2007 Tres Ojos from Wegmans the last couple of weeks. Pretty good, AND cheap @10.00 or so a bottle.

A little money?
I would hate to see what you consider to be alot of money.

I have very few wines in the cellar beyond the $30 price point. Probably about 7-10 cellaring wines with the most expensive being a port.
My favorite chardonnay to date is actually Canadian and about $28/ bottle. I'm always open to finding new favorites though so i'll call around and see if i can find that winery offerings locally or not.


My Peter Michael Chards start at $75 and go up to $160, which makes the Hartford Court seam pretty reasonable. I keep a seperate 50 bottle cooler for guilt-free drinkers that are $25 and under. All other bottles go to the celler with the exception of sav blancs and rose's that I keep in another 50 bottle cooler that I like to keep a bit colder.

Wine question for you experts.
Normally, we never have half empty bottles as we are not big wine drinkers and only ever open a bottle if we intend to finish it. However, after a surprise party on Saturday, we have been left with four or five bottles of wine stoppered up in our refrigerator.

In the unusual event there's some wine left over at home, my wife uses an empty plastic water bottle to store the wine and then carefully squash the bottle until all air is out. works pretty well.

Guilt free at $25 and under?
My price point is definitely lower. I think the guilt factor kicks in around $18+ in our house.

I house all my bottles in the cellar and just chill the whites a bit more with a wine chiller (Vinchilla) before use. It only takes about 5 minutes out of the cellar and in the ice water before it hits that perfect temperature.
Off the shelf from a store wines take about 12-15 minutes of chilling to reach the same.

Chess – you must have access to some pretty killer deals then. Either that or you just don’t dabble in Napa wines much. Napa has caught up with France, and exceeded it in price point. And unfortunately for me, I tend to favor wines from Napa or Bordeaux.

I figured I’d pass on a good place to buy wine. Either by phone, or now on-line. The crowd I hang out with has been buying wine from these guys for years. They always hook us up with killer wine at great prices. Don’t let the bibs and banjo fool you….Rick knows wine. They have a few Utube videos and Facebook videos. These guys are the real deal. I spent a few hours with them my last trip to Napa and found them to be way cool and just flat out fun to hang with. If a $100 bottle of wine is swill, they’ll say it. If a $20 bottle of wine is good, you’ll hear that too. They currently have some wines on sale that I have, or have bought before and can’t believe how cheap they are selling them for.
